a farmers market dinner

I spent my morning at the Ferry Plaza Farmers' market today, knowing Heidi was joining us for supper. It turns out that this entire menu was made from farmers' market booty, with the single exception of the proscuitto! It was great for the sunny breeze Mission "it's almost fall" weather we had yesterday.

Amuse bouche: grilled figs stuffed with chevre and wrapped in proscuitto
(we ate these straight off the grill, while we were cooking off the rest of dinner)

Dinner: Grilled steak with Point Reyes blue cheese butter, grilled squashes with fresh purple and green basil, and warm & spicey grilled potato salad.

The potatoes were Russian Butterballs! I adored the name, and the taters themselves were wonderfully tasty. We served dinner with a 1992 Clos du Val Cabernet Sauvignon.
